– public space, "rotor", Graz
Within "TIT FOR TAT - Counter Images for Transcultural Thinking and Acting - < rotor >" Kashanti / szu szu performed in the public space of the streets of Graz. The artists, dressed in their performance clothes, were walking around the city with a specially prepared boat, on which there was audio equipment playing and recording sound. Passers by were provoked to join in recording a song about multinational and multicultural Graz. All people participating in the singing received a dictionary, in which maritime words had their non maritime equivalent, for example ocean – mother, harbour – flat. Some used it though others preferred to directly sing their stories and problems. A 27-minutes long, expressive song about Graz was recorded, in which almost all verses were in different languages. This song is Kashanti‘s second record: "Sailors".
